Year 1 Homework

Weekly Overview

This page provides parents with an overview of what the children are learning about in Maths and Literacy as well as outlining their current homework.

If there are specific on-going issues with any aspects of your child’s homework, please contact their class teacher directly to discuss the matter further.

Reading is fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. Reading develops your brain, provides a window into the world around you and gives you a greater chance to succeed. 

Please support your child read by hearing them at least four times a week and completing their Reading Record. Thank you!

We would like to invite the children to take part in a termly project which they should undertake in addition to their reading and learning their spellings and maths facts.

The children should choose a minimum of one task per section or more if they wish! 

Children will be awarded a certificate upon the completion of their project.

Think of 5 animals that you would have in your own zoo. Write a leaflet to advertise your zoo, including facts about each of the 5 animals that people will get to see there. Find out about the roles and responsibilities of Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses (either in the UK or another country of your choice). Write a diary entry of a day in the life of a King, Queen, Prince or Princess.
Make a model of an animal habitat out of a shoe box. For example, an underwater shoebox with a fish inside or a jungle shoe box with a monkey inside.
Find facts about a country you have not been to before. Pretend you have travelled there and write a postcard to someone you know, telling them what you have seen and experienced.Research animal skins, patterns, furs and textures. Create a mood board or a patchwork picture of different animal skin patterns.Create your own model globe, complete with labelled continents and oceans. This can be made out of any materials you like – for example, paper mache balloon, an old football or two paper bowls stuck together.
Write a riddle poem about an animal with the title ‘What am I?’
Give the reader at least 5 clues about the animal. You could even draw a ‘reveal’ picture of the animal underneath your poem for the reader to check the answer!
Find out about a castle in the UK. Draw or colour a picture of it and write a fact file.Create your own crown fit for a King or Queen – the more jewels and details, the better!
